This one is super kid friendly. We believe that kids should be in the kitchen as early as you have the patience for it. And meatloaf is one of those really easy to prepare suppers that kids are eager to help with. This one is stuffed with bacon and cheese, which kind of tastes like a bacon cheeseburger according to the munchkin. And served with cheesy garlic potatoes is the best!
My great grandmother made the best chicken and dumplings. I couldn't wait to go visit her for chicken and dumplings and butter beans. And also because she had the coolest front porch, with a giant set of steps. She made everything from scratch and it was always so perfect. I'm still not sure quite how she made them but these are pretty good too. Every time I make them I think of her.
